Migraine Awareness Month #13: “You Are Beautiful.” Write yourself a love letter. Tell yourself how wonderful you are. Remind yourself of the things you have accomplished despite Migraines. There are times when we need to be reminded of the good things about ourselves that others see that we may have missed.
okay. you do realize i am british, right? this question is mostly made of squirm, for me, but i do get the point of this so i will BRAVELY push on…
- this blog.
- i have learned and taught meditation.
- i have a good relationship.
- i look after my dear little doggy.
- i make friends and cherish friendships.
- i manage my own household, perhaps not perfectly, but still, could be worse!

“National Migraine Awareness Month is initiated by the National Headache Foundation. The Blogger’s Challenge is initiated by www.FightingHeadacheDisorders.com.”
if you are interested in using meditation techniques to help manage pain i can recommend these talks and led meditations. don’t worry about whether you have ever meditated before or not.
these are free to use, and if you want to make a donation to audiodharma you can. there are a lot of other links on that site if you get enthusiastic, but for painiacs as much as anyone else pema chodron’s advice holds true “start where you are”.
my wonderful myofascial release guy, ron, is moving home. due to circumstances i won’t go into here, he needs either temporary or permanent homes for his two cats, pearl and hannah pretty urgently. they live happily together, but could be homed separately. he might not get settled for some months and he doesn’t want to disrupt them too much, so understands that it might be better for them to be rehomed permanently. he is willing to continue to pay the health insurance and bills for the rest of their lives.
